There will be no vacation for me this summer. Not the vacation that will take me away out of some far away town. The reasons are obvious: money and time. It sounds like a blank ad for a billboard but it is true because i have nothing to show up for it. I will be in the LA and Orange county vicinities and perhaps outskirting in Vegas. If you will be skedaddling in these towns, let me know, perhaps we can arrange something.
I have registered on a watercolor class. I never really have a formal training on painting before but i thought i will give it try, after all it's all about self expression. This is a short none-credit class, which means i can't get a "D" for not putting the effort.
On a somewhat similar note, i often wonder if i need a formal training on my writing. On one hand, i feel the classroom setting will improve all of the technicalities that i will never learn on my own and i will have a critical support group of teachers and peers; and on the other, i feel like i am also growing through an independent and self-sustaining nurturing of my craft. This is a seesaw opinon that i have never thought seriously about, but it's always at the back of my mind like a hanging nail.
